Walkability and Accessibility Study is a research project undertaken to explore walkability principles. The walkability variables are categorized as assets and issues that promote and hamper walking condition in East Liberty a neighborhood in Pittsburgh.

The study is to ascertain two high priority streets that should be revitalized immediately with minimum investment and maximum impact. Jeff Specks “ Walkable City� is the source of reference to hone on the Urban Triage Method of selection along with inputs from community. High priority streets would not only enhance the walking experience in East Liberty but also foster the commercial enterprises in the district!

Active Use Spaces

Spaces used for strenuous sports or fitness activities. Examples include but not limited to: • Gymnasium • Run/ jog track • Weight and cardiovascular exercise room • Group fitness room • Fitness studio • Aquatics

These design guidelines address the need to build architecture that relates to the neighborhood context, depicts importance of civic harmony and also creates a place for community interaction.

Active Use Spaces | Gym

Passive Use Spaces

The design guidelines are organized by interior spaces that allow for a variety of recreational and social activities to take place. Interior spaces are divided into three main typologies: • Active Use Spaces • Passive Use Passes • General Use Spaces

The study scrutinizes the master plan at three scale: Watershed, Sector and Sample Area. After extensive deliberation and field survey, the studio identified issues in the proposed zoning to provide achievable modifications. The recommendations support Urban Sustainability issues related to urban form, infrastructure, water drainage, storm water drainage etc. The eventual goal was to incorporate Green Infrastructure into the zoning to address the issue of recurring floods and heat island effect in Kigali. Aspects like bioswales, green roofs, urban agriculture, retention ponds, wetland parks, pocket parks and living systems are recommended in the new zoning. The study was conducted in collaboration of Kigali Department of Planning, that envisions Kigali to be the next â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sustainable City in Central Africaâ&#x20AC;?!

Revival of Urban Nexus

is a design proposal that deals with interlinking of faced paced transit corridor along with relaxing recreational spaces in Pittsburgh. The transit connectivity on the corridor is currently under utilized thus, the goal of the project is to encourage residents of the neighborhood to switch to public transit. Additional amenities like food stores, urban farm, green house are planned around the bus stop to foster Healthy Living in the community. The primary planning of the transit route is based on analysis related to topography, walking shed, urban street patterns, physical attributes and environmental factors. A hub that promotes transit and food services has the potential to increase transit ridership. Improved Accessibility to transit stops with an appealing waiting experience for commuters is the need of the hour for ‘Urban Sprawled’ neighborhoods. Economic Development South (EDS) is the organization that supported the vision of making six neighborhoods in Pittsburgh ‘Walkable’!

Public Library

is planned as a public amenity to deliver and gain knowledge within walking distance in a neighborhood in Mumbai. A sourc e of entertainment for some and resource of information for others. The public library is designed to serve children, music lovers, differently able and scholars of all age groups. The library is designed Barrier Free specially for blind and on wheelchair. The concept of Universal design is emphasized by using accessibility as the driving feature while designing spaces. The design is an earthquake resistant structure that can sustain a zone III earthquake by provision of RCC Columns and Ribbed Slabs. Thus, the library is not only a center for learning but a museum that demonstrates sustainable design practices achieved not only by mass and form but by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Function it Rendersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;!
